In our world today, we are all truly alone. No matter what we do or how hard we try to pretend that we are not alone– by surrounding ourselves amongst people, friends and loved ones. There are those moments, fractions of seconds that remind us of this sad, depressing fact. The fact that no matter what we do, how we live and with whom we live, we truly are alone.

Alone, to deal with our problems, because friends and family understand only so much. Alone to enjoy the fleeting happiness of the many relationships, of success, of love. Alone to endure the bitter trials of loss, betrayal, and death.

Why? Because no one can truly understand what anyone else is going through, but themselves. That is how we live our lives, together, yet alone. Constant hypocrisy. We live our lives as individuals who work only for ourselves but talk about unity, living as one community, one city, one country, one nation, one world. But really no one cares about you, your problems and frankly not even your life.

Not because they are heartless, cold beings, but because they are too busy helping themselves.
